Afterwards we had a Friday celebration for a really cool guy on the team that has now been in our group for 10 years. I spent the bulk of that period discussing Doctor Who and Highlander and explained that Highlander IV was actually a really amazingly good movie.
I get to the car. There is reggae music playing. jnanacandra really doesn't like Reggae... so... weird.
I get in the car and she looks at me and says, "Sorry I don't have room to get down on one knee... but, would you like your ex-girlfriend's ring." Which she then placed on my finger.
This unto itself requires explanation.... A really cool person I was involved with about 1 year and a half back and I exchanged rings. After we broke up she asked me to keep the ring she gave me. And I wear it daily. I took it in last week for a cleaning to a jeweler we use.
H picked it up today while I was at work. But, in our family sense of humour.. she couldn't merely hand it over. So, she came up with the contrived sentence above. Which between the reggae, the class, the discussion on Highlander, and everything else... my brain went FWEEEEEEE!
Guess it's time for a new Doctor Who... At least that'll make sense. It's not like unexpected relatives are gonna pop up out of nowhere for the Doctor.
